Palestine has the second highest number of Victorian and historic homes in Texas (Galveston wins 1st prize). With so many historic properties, I am lucky to get to see many of these spectacular treasures! Of course, I have an extreme
obsession fondness for historic properties. One of these days, I will make a post on the restoration of our office, an 1895 Victorian home that had suffered from decades of 1970s-era decorating..but that is a post for another day! Historic homes have their own set of hurdles and owning/restoring one is definitely a labor of love, but daaaannnng the fruits of your labor are well worth it in the end!
So, without further delay, I present to you the 6 coolest features of historic homes:
You cant have too many built-ins. Where else will you keep your tschotskes and 1st Monday finds?!
If these walls could talk…what would they say? Who built the home? Why? What happened to them? Are their descendants still in the area? Is it haunted? Is there a family plot on the property? Are there treasures in the attic? Are those the original owners tools in the garage? The more you know, the more you’ll want to know!
